Cliched, Slow, Quirky, Disappointing, Intense

See it if You enjoy plays that deal with the sadness and confusion that often accompanies aging. You like plays without almost no set.

Don't see it if You only enjoy theatre performed in a very traditional style. Comedies and light theatre are your favorite types of shows. No comedy in this

Thought-provoking, Profound, Great writing, Great staging, Must see

See it if you want original theater that is thought-provoking, unique, and deep, and if you are tired of the same-old and want something smart & fresh

Don't see it if you want and expect kitchen-sink drama that tells you what and how to think and is all tied up in a bow at the end

"In following the phases of one woman’s life through the clashing perspectives of three alter egos, 'Hundred' inevitably brings to mind Edward Albee’s “Three Tall Women...Yet it lacks the linguistic grace and harsh wisdom of Mr. Albee’s play. And it fails to create a character that feels other than generic...The women register as a mutually empathic, which doesn’t really make sense...Ms. Chen provides the play with its most—and arguably only—grippingly focused moment."

"An emotionally compelling view on the different stages of one’s self encountered over a lifetime…Audiences are in for a treat as this provocative and progressive new play examines many of the important social issues occurring throughout the world in a fresh and truly thought-provoking way...For an intense and revealing look at the state of humanity, 'The Hundred We Are' provides an epiphany worth considering."

"This is a piece that could not land well (or even survive) without the help of strong leads; in this production, however, it is a non-issue....A rare occurrence: 'The Hundred We Are' is female-driven and woman-centric, although inevitably occasionally noticeably through the eyes of a man. Thankfully, in a show that features an all-woman cast and revolves around the pluses and negatives of one woman’s life in particular, the show does justice to the female experience."

"A surreal, phantasmagorical piece...Three women of different ages, backgrounds, and ethnicities as well as a 'shadow'—who could be seen as a Greek chorus—constitute the splendid cast...The play’s production is stark, making director Erwin Maas’s work particularly difficult and praiseworthy...'The Hundred We Are' is a difficult work, one for theater aficionados. It is thought-provoking and requires intense concentration...It is a dark play but there are comic moments."

"There is something undeniably good going on in this production, but there is also an extent to which it feels like a certain amount of piss and vinegar is missing. The elements all seem there, the cast are game, the setup is interesting, the script is set, the design is good. While I enjoyed the show and took something away from it with me, I don’t feel the need to rave about it...I didn’t feel like I was being told anything I didn’t already know. I am moved, but unchanged."

"'The Hundred We Are' gives voice to a generation torn...The result is a play that is the most accurate representation of what it feels like to be female today that I have seen in a long time...I give tremendous credit to the playwright for being able to voice the human experience so well. That being said…it’s an odd play. You will need to work to suspend your disbelief but bear with it because the end result is worth it...'The Hundred We Are' is intriguing and relevant."
